I like it. Amr is brilliant with his Iraqi accent. Well done. Joseph 
Wow! I can't wait for the next part! :) 
This is a great peice of acting. Sober and intelligent, I really enjoyed it. The out of focus looks weird. Was it done in post? 
Thank you pierre, glad you enjoyed it. I think we had a technical issue because we had to transfer the rushes from HD to minidv format and I guess we lost a bit of quality on the way... 
Based on your experience in Baghdad? was this actually shot while there or did you recreate it. Either way, very well done! Looking forward to the next part. 
I was in Baghdad in 2003, but this was shot in East London! The red carpet, brick walls and iron bars on the windows all reminded me of our office there ... 
I really love the way everthing was put in including the shots, cast etc. Keep it up Hamdan. 
three words.. bold brave and sweet! 
This looks like a featire film, so professional, good actos, good evrything. I just want to know more! 
best so far. i would love to see what happens after this. so... shortlisted 
hey i thought this was a good story and written well, acting was pretty good... I would have liked to have seen more location, but i'm sure that wasn't possible, you did a nice job with what you had. Check out PFI: Party Foul Investigation, also in the first day contest.. its a comedy but its shot really well... 
It's now 12am at Firdous Square... time to get out of the news office and walk on the wild side of Baghdad! Well done! Want to see the rest for sure! Cheers!
